Supreme Court Backs Hobby Lobby

Posted: Updated:

KIOWA COUNTY, Okla._ The Supreme Court ruled in favor of Hobby Lobby, setting a new precedent.

For-profit employers, with religious objections, can opt out of providing contraception coverage under Obamacare. However, the ruling deals directly with only a small provision of Obamacare and will not take down the entire law. It amounts to a huge setback Obamacare.

Governor Fallin said the decision protects “religious liberty” and defends citizens from an “overreaching, overbearing federal government.”

"It's a big victory on the Affordable Care Act that Hobby Lobby challenge President Obama's administration and their policy on the healthcare plan itself and won that lawsuit today so it's a good day," said Fallin.

Fallin says she believes the government has no right to intrude on a business owner's religious beliefs.
